FROSTBORN: THE MASTER THIEF sold about 1,070 copies its first month. Thanks, everyone! I am very grateful, and the thought that 1,070 people read it is a bit daunting. Additionally, it sold more copies on Amazon UK than Amazon US, which is the first time that has ever happened for one of my books. I’m not entirely sure why, but I certainly shall not complain!
In August it will have been a year since the first FROSTBORN book came out, and the series has grown quite a bit since then. Listed below are how many copies each book sold in its first month, which I have posted here for the benefit of other writers that might be thinking about launching a series.
It has been very gratifying to see it grow. The lesson for writers, I suspect, is that a series simply takes time to grow. But Rome was not built in a day (or, as Ridmark would call it, the Empire of the Romans upon Old Earth), and neither was the realm of Andomhaim.
